Black Panther (2018) Info
Release Date: 2018-02-13
Kevin Feige says Black Panther will absolutely get a sequel, early story plans already in place.
Well, this will come as no surprise whatsoever given that the first movie is set to break the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office this weekend, but Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has confirmed that we absolutely will do a sequel to Black Panther, and that ideas for the second movie are already in place.
One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two, Feige tells EW. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther. We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one.
The nation of Wakanda is going to play a big role in Avengers: Infinity War as the site of a major battle between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Thanos’ forces (according to Feige, we’ll be spending the entire third act there), so you’d have to imagine the events – and aftermath – of the next two Avengers movies will have a significant impact on the story for the sequel.
Presumably, Black Panther 2 will fill one of the recently announced Marvel release, and join the already announced Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as part of the Phase Four slate.
A king is only as strong as those who stand beside him. Luckily for Black Panther, he has one of the coolest girls in the world to keep him on his toes: his little sister, Shuri. Actress Letitia Wright wonderfully brought the Wakandan princess to life in Ryan Coogler’s record-breaking hit Black Panther, and now one of the film’s artists has shared some Shuri concept art that shows off a few early designs for the tech-savvy genius.
I feel sheepish admitting this, but I didn’t even notice that Shuri’s gauntlets in the movie were shaped like panthers. I just thought they were cool-looking blasters. So while Ortiz prefers the sleeker models we saw in the film, I would have preferred the giant gauntlets from that concept art because I definitely would have picked up on the designs that way. But maybe that’s just me. Maybe everyone else was totally aware that those gauntlets are panther-shaped and I’m the only one who looks like an idiot right now!
Wright’s performance as Shuri was so great that I had to specifically ask writer/director Ryan Coogler about her character when I spoke with him about the film. Here’s what he said:
Going through the process of writing the film and working with my co-writer, Joe Robert Cole, I thought Shuri would be a cool Q. It’d be really interesting seeing a young African teenager who’s manipulated this element in ways that nobody else could and who’s confident and able to have her own space. In our minds, Wakanda’s a place that looks at age differently than other places. It’s not a place where, because you’re young, you don’t get a chance to lead, and because you’re old, we don’t cast you aside. It’s looking at time and age more in an African sense.
I also thought that as we were writing, I realized that the more stuff we can put in this relationship between T’Challa and his sister, the better off we’ll be because that’s another thing that makes him so unique. There are no superheroes that I can think of that have a little sister who they love dearly and who can bring out the best in them but also keep them down to Earth, you know what I mean? Their relationship is built on love, and out of that, so many other things grew. She became so much more than just a Q.
